When Matchi CEO David Milligan was invited to speak on a panel at the inaugural Rakuten Financial Conference, he immediately accepted the offer to attend the conference hosted by one of the worlds 'Top 20 Most Innovative Companies'.
The Rakuten Financial Conference took place on 23 February at the Palace Hotel in Tokyo where leaders from both Finance and IT industries met to explore cutting edge "FinTech" on a global scale. Serving as a platform to promote active discussions, the conference delivered four panel discussions which showcased the latest information and views from renowned fintech experts and entrepreneurs, both from Japan and overseas.
David spoke alongside Eli Broverman, Michael Laven and Peter Bell on 'The Forefront of Fintech' panel which was moderated by CNBC's Steve Lewis. Feedback has been extremely positive with both banks and start ups from the region already beginning to register as members on the Matchi innovation matchmaking platform.
